Understanding These Common Myths About Storage

There are a ton of myths floating around about storage and it’s time to set the record straight here at Crate It Storage.

Myth #1: Storage is only for those transitioning.

Storage options are not just for those transitioning, period. People commonly think storage is an option for those temporarily relocating for work, college/university students during the summer or those downsizing to a smaller home. In the city, we are seeing an influx of individuals living in condos, or townhouses than ever before. These spaces are great for many reasons including their affordability but are not always great for having a ton of storage space. If you’re lacking space for your bicycle in the winter months, snowboard in the summer months, or anything else, storage is an excellent option for you.

Myth #2: Storage is only for individuals.

Many people assume storage solutions are only available for individuals which is simply not true. Many business owners use storage to assist in their company operations. With the government regulations requiring business owners in Canada to hold onto paperwork for years, your office can become a space cluttered with boxes in a quick hurry. Many digital businesses are also making use of storage options to keep samples, and extra inventory accessible without the clutter in their home office. No matter the business, you can benefit from storage solutions.

Myth #3: Storage is expensive.

The cost of storage is completely affordable for every budget, period. At Crate It Storage we are determined to provide cost effective solutions to individuals and businesses alike. Our prices are based on the size of your items, so that box of keepsakes isn’t going to make or break your budget and neither are small pieces of furniture or the winter tires for your car.
